Getting Around in PRAGUE

Prague has a convenient and good public transport network that covers all areas that visitors to the city are likely to frequent. To get to the historic center of the city, one needs to make use of cleaner and quieter public transport options like the electric tram or the metro.

The Metro consists of 3 underground lines and is operational from around 5:30AM until midnight. Tickets must be stamped at the machines at stations before boarding. 1, 3 and 5 day passes are available at concessional rates for visitors.

Tram lines crisscross through the city on 24 different lines. They run from 4:30 in the morning until midnight with limited service in the night time.    

Prague’s Bus service mostly covers the outer parts of the city. However it offers good connectivity to get to and from the airport.

Taxis are generally not to be preferred, since there are chances that visitors may be deceived. If hailing a taxi, book in advance through your hotel and make sure you agree on the price before getting in.

Passenger cruises and ferries offer a great way of passing through the historic city and taking in its sights.

Walking is the best way to cover the beautiful sights of Prague in the historic parts of the town.
